General Soleimani blames Saudis for creating Takfiri terrorist groups

FNA- Commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Qassem Soleimani took Saudi Arabia responsible for the creation of the Takfiri terrorist groups and critical conditions in the region.

“Iran has never created crisis and never nurtured the Takfiris. The (terrorist) groups like Jeish al-Islam and Jeish al-Hor have been created by the Saudis but we became the source of stability in Syria,” General Soleimani said, addressing a forum in Tehran on Sunday.

Stressing that Iran doesn’t differentiate between its own and Iraq’s interests, he said, “We were not after occupying the oil wells, Mosul and Kirkuk and currency demands (in Iraq).”

Iran is providing Iraq and Syria with military advisory and humanitarian aid in their fight against terrorist groups.

General Soleimani said in March 2016 that Takfiri terrorism threatens all Muslims, and Iran has waged war on those terrorists that trade enslaved women and children.

“The fire of Takfiri and Takfirism has engulfed in homes of our Sunni brothers. Those behind this are under the illusion that they can bring Shiism and the Islamic Republic to their knees. More than anywhere else, Takfiri groups have targeted the sanctity of humanity and the Sunni world,” General Soleimani said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran.

General Soleimani then asked those behind the smear campaign to question Iran’s policy in its ongoing war on terror, “Is it adventurism if the Islamic Republic makes sacrifices to defend Muslims? Is it wrong for the Islamic Republic to battle a group that in just one region is buying and selling some 20,000 unfortunate enslaved young women? Is it wrong for the Islamic Republic to stand against the anti-Muslim current and stop the demolition of Mosques and Muslim holy sites?”

His remarks came after Iraqi Minister of Human Rights Mohammed Mahdi Ameen al-Bayati said the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group has sold more than 5,000 women and girls merely from Iraq’s Izadi Kurdish minority in their slave market.
